My computer says the speed is 100Mbit/sec. Why is my Internet connection not as fast?

There are several other factors that can determine the speed of your connection such as cable distance, cable quality, internal wiring, exchange, etc.

Below is a rough estimate of speeds you can expect depending on your distance to the exchange.
